The Raymond Ranch Blog

Up to date happenings on the ranch from "her" perspective

Welcome to the Raymond Ranch!

Welcome to my blog about our crazy ranch life! My husband and I own a ranch in the Pacific Northwest; however, it's not just any ordinary ranch...we have built an operating aquaponics system here on our ranch (get to know more about aquaponics by clicking on the link at the bottom of our home page). My husband...a.k.a "TheRealMartian" is the engineer/builder (check out his YouTube channel for a fun way to learn about what we are doing,, especially system overview video and I get to reap the rewards; however, it has not come without it's challenges! Follow me on this wild ride of ranch life, aquaponics/gardening, including lessons learned, and my love of cooking, especially with food from our ranch to your table!
